Million Dollar Quartet is the electrifying new musical inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis for the first and only time.

On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits that includes "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "That's All Right," "Sixteen Tons," "Great Balls of Fire," "Walk the Line," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Who Do You Love?," "Real Wild Child," "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Hound Dog."

This thrilling musical captures the singular moment when four major talents came together to become a red-hot rock ´┐Żn' roll band. Don't miss your chance to be a fly on the wall of fame... at Million Dollar Quartet.
